SPACE on Ryder Farm announces 2021 Harvest Commission members
SPACE on Ryder Farm recently announced the artists who will contribute work to the 2021 Harvest Club Art Subscription. Through a competitive application process, eight SPACE residency program alumni were named 2021 Harvest Commission winners, chosen to create unique pieces of work that will be distributed to SPACE’s 180 Harvest Club and Art Subscription members.
The Art Subscription is a new model of support and distribution for artists that establishes relationships with collectors and patrons while also putting money directly into artists’ pockets. Each 2021 Harvest Commission Artist receives a $1000 stipend for their work. Additionally, Harvest Commissioned Artists receive 50% net profits from all Harvest Club Art Subscriptions sold.
“We’re thrilled to be able to continue the Harvest Commission program for a third year and provide a direct line of support, both financially and professionally, to the SPACE community,” said SPACE co-founder and executive director Emily Simoness. “We were blown away by the thoughtful and powerful work that the SPACE community proposed in the application process.”
This season, Lindsey Bailey will design the 2021 Harvest Club tote bag. Lindsey’s piece Sunshine Transparency will be printed on recycled plastic tote bags for all Harvest Club members. Additionally, this season of art includes a paper quilt collage made of cyanotype prints of vintage objects from Kate M. Blomquist (, a 10-minute play about community and food and the great outdoors from Kristoffer Diaz and his sons, a series of darkly comic stories centered on themes of home and homelessness from Mary Elizabeth Hamilton (, a mini cookbook about Black women, food and memory meant to nourish during hard times from Shivon Pearl Love, poems in English and Spanish chronicling places of community for new immigrants from Michelle Moncayo, a pen-and-ink triptych that explores the power and potential of large gatherings from Jen Silvermanand a limited-edition, hand-printed etching about intimate partner violence from Kate Tarker.
Interested art patrons can purchase an Art Subscription and, in return, receive four issues of SPACE-produced artwork this year between June and October. Art Subscriptions can be delivered anywhere in the United States.
